Does anyone have experience with driling and doweling or attaching live rock together. I want to go with a more open aquascape this time. I want to make some arches. I know Tom did columns, so I will definitely hit him up for drilling technique. Post pics if you have attached live rock pices together before. Thanks in advance.

Use flexi glass rods from tap plastic, they are stronger and cheaper than acrylic rods. epoxy and ziptie works great too. To drill use a ceramic drill bit they tend to work the best.

Get two bits, one to fit the rod, and one smaller bit to run the ziptie

Mike- I did an aquascaping job for my buddy about a year ago and made him a couple free standing structures including a 100+ pound arch that is actually about 10-12 different pieces. I drilled the rock and used fiberglass dowels from TAP plastics along with a whole lot of aquamend to shear up the seams. I'd be glad to help out any way I can.......If you promise to come to a meeting soon that is:D
